Read this article about Harvard lecturer Tal Ben Shahar in today's Haaretz.
Listen to this radio interview with Tal on NPR. (I love his accent!)
Watch Tal's lectures on video straight from his course web site (click on "Lecture Videos," pick your lecture and wait: they take a while to download).
I discovered that the same thing that makes Tal happy makes me happy:
"...Despite all the problems, we have a wonderful country. Israel is my home and I love the country. When I ask myself what will bring me personal happiness, happiness for my family, the answer is to live in Israel. The Israelis are very authentic. In no other place have I experienced the bond I have with the state and with the people who live in it - and I am not the first Israeli to say this."Tal is returning to Israel this summer for a year or more.
